The $1.5m gem 'not seen for decades'

This spring, Christie's New York will present two exceptional jewels with fascinating histories - the Emperor Maximilian Diamond, and the Catherine the Great Emerald and Diamond Brooch. 

Both jewels will highlight Christie's first major jewelry sale of the year on April 22, and set the tone for what promises to be another exceptionally strong year for rare jewels in the global auction market.


The Emperor Maximilian Diamond (estimate: $1,000,000-1,500,000)


"This April we are honoured to present two legendary gems not seen in public for decades - the Emperor Maximilian Diamond of 39.55 carats and the Catherine the Great Emerald and Diamond Brooch," said Rahul Kadakia, Head of Jewelry at Christie's New York.

"Aside from their exceptional rarity, these large stones bear a fascinating history and provenance that renders them truly priceless in the world of fine jewels. 

"We look forward to unveiling them both in New York for our auction on April 22," he said.
